Sorry for outage on January 6th 2016

Hey guys, on January 6th this website had severe outage. It was caused by the provider (RedHat OpenShift) and resolved by moving the application to my own infrastructure. This means:

  1. For US users it will be a little bit slower (each request for about 100ms), because until this moment the website was in US. On the other hand for european users it will be a little bit faster, because now the server is located in EU.
  2. The website will be a little bit faster overall, because now it's on a much better hardware. On the other hand it now shares it's space with other applications, so there may be short outages in coming hours / days in order to fine-tune it.
  3. The application has moved from www.topsqlblogs.com to topsqlblogs.com (lost "www." prefix) which wasn't possible with the old architecture.
